Rising Star is the Historic Morris 28 Linda, Hull #1 * Designed by one of America's preeminent naval architects, Chuck Paine.....In the early 1980s the successful racing sailor from Westport, CT, Allan Stern, commissioned Tom Morris to build this very boat. Stern wanted a small boat suitable for he and his wife to sail the Long Island Sound and places beyond. As an avid racer, he wanted this little cruiser to have exceptional sailing capabilities. The boat was named after Stern's wife, Linda, and he purchased not only this hull number 1, but also the tooling for production. Rising Star, hull #1, was introduced in 1985, and production spanned five years and totaled 16 hulls.
Rising Star is a work of art. * She's fast, nimble and boasts outstanding fit and finish. * Built on a Heavily Constructed Solid Fiberglass Hull with Balsa Cored Decks * Keel Stepped Mast * Full Keel * As preventive maintenance, the portholes have all been re-beded. * The cabin features solid teak bulkheads, varnished pine slating and dark mahogany trim. * Auxiliary power is provided by the reliable and well-maintained 13/hp Westerbeke diesel inboard. * She was featured in Sailing Magazine in September of 1985 as well as Mate's book, The World's Best Sailboats. Her hull shines in black Awlgrip and she's been lovingly preserved and well-maintained throughout the years. Notably, Morris Yachts was acquired by the Hinckley Company in 2016.
It should be noted that this elegant beauty is currently docked in her well-protected, fixed concrete slip in the highly regarded Windmill Harbour Yacht Basin on Hilton Head Island, SC. Windmill Harbour is a gated community that is also home to the South Carolina Yacht Club. The marina is a locked harbor, meaning that it is only accessible through a 20' X 80' lock. This allows for a consistent water level, bath-tub-calm protection plus ground water makes it way into the basin creating a brackish water environment.
Robust construction, ample tankage and unsurpassed directional and transverse stability describe the 28 Linda. Small enough to be easily handled and large enough to accommodate four adults for brief periods or two for longer cruises.
Moving from aft forward in the cabin, there is a quarter-berth located to port immediately upion entry with the full-service galley to starboard. The main saloon has facing bench sofas to port and starboard with a fold-down, bulkhead-mounted table between. The head is next, forward and to port with a Raritan Compact II head and the entire compartment doubles as a stand-up shower stall. Opposite the head is a hanging locker and completely forward is a large V-berth with an overhead deck prism for natural lighting. The interior is finished with teak bulkheads, pine sheathed hull, white berth faces and cabin top. There is varnished teak trim throughout and varnished laminated beams on the coach roof. The interior is very traditional, warm and well maintained.
